Shiny new toys

Look what turned up in the post today.

I have big plans for this little beauty. First I need to play around with it but on my list of things to do in the not too distant future is port Entertainer to the beagle board with the intentions of running it on the new Maemo 5 platform.

For those people that don’t already know, Entertainer is a fully function albeit sparse at the moment, media center like application using Python and Clutter. Its been built entirely from scratch and boasts good functionality already with much more planned for the future.

I want to be fully up to speed by the time the Maemo 5 SDK is released (hopefully in November) and the nearest thing to getting the actual hardware is the beagle board so I figure why not port one of my other projects and kill two birds with one stone.

For a little reminder of what Entertainer looks like.

If you are interested in helping out with the project the get in contact. You can reach me through the contact link at the top of the page.
